Contributed presentations, in oral and poster sessions, plenary and special sessions will take place during the week-long Colloquium. It is ICDERS policy to encourage intensive discussions on basic and applied research of fundamental and timely topics. Extended abstracts of papers presented at the Colloquium will be published in the USB memory stick of the Proceedings and will be made available through the website of the Institute for the Dynamics of Explosions and Reactive Systems (IDERS), Authors of papers presented at this meeting are encouraged to submit full-length versions to one of t journals: Combustion Science and Technology, Combustion Theory and Modeling, and Shock Waves. Submitted manuscripts will be peer reviewed according to individual journal standards but will be identified as ICDERS work individually or as part of a special issue.
